EXCITEMENT is building for the youngsters in Ellesmere Port.
To celebrate the release of a new feature-length DVD, Vue Entertainment has partnered with HIT Entertainment, one of the world’s leading independent children’s producers, to bring Bob the Builder and his hardworking team to life on the big screen.
On Saturday and Sunday, November 1 and 2, 40 Vue cinemas across the UK – including the one on The Coliseum, Ellesmere Port – will open for parents and children to showcase a morning devoted to Bob, Wendy and their machine team as they embark on a project to build a huge sports stadium for the first ever Sunflower Valley Games.
Viewers will experience the new film, in which Bob is voiced by actor Neil Morrissey, using the latest Digital technology and 5:1 Dolby Surround Sound.
Mark de Quervain, head of sales & marketing at Vue, said: “This special screening of Bob the Builder: Race to the Finish, follows the success of another classic, Thomas the Tank Engine.
“These stories and characters are so close to many children’s hearts it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to experience seeing them on the large screen.”
Tickets are £3.50 each, from www.myvue.com/bobthebuilder, calling 08712 240240 or directly from the cinema.
A short film is to be screened at The Vue Cinema on The Coliseum to mark the 60th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Actors Julian Rhind-Tutt, Emilia Fox, Jeremy Irons, Lindsay Duncan and radio presenter George Lamb are the stars behind part animation part live action film Everybody, which was specially written and produced for the occasion.
It will be screened as a trailer to one of the season’s hottest new films, High School Musical 3, from this Friday (October 31).
